Foot posture as a risk factor for lower limb overuse injury: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Journal of Foot and Ankle Research 2014, 7:55 (19 December 2014)
This systematic review of 21 studies identifies moderate and very limited evidence of small effect that pronated foot posture is a risk factor for medial tibial stress syndrome and patellofemoral pain, respectively.
Dynamic foot function as a risk factor for lower limb overuse injury: a systematic review
Journal of Foot and Ankle Research 2014, 7:53 (19 December 2014)
This systematic review of 12 studies identifies very limited evidence, with small to moderate effect sizes, that dynamic foot function during walking and running is a risk factor for patellofemoral pain, Achilles tendinopathy, and non-specific lower limb overuse injuries.

Movement of the human foot in 100 pain free individuals aged 18–45: implications for understanding normal foot function
Journal of Foot and Ankle Research 2014, 7:51 (28 November 2014)
In the largest multi-segment foot model study so far undertaken, Nester and colleagues report kinematics of the leg, calcaneus, midfoot, medial and lateral forefoot and hallux in 100 self reported healthy and pain free individuals during walking.The data reveal the foot is a multi-articular structure, movements are complex, show incomplete evidence of coupling, and vary substantially from person to person.

The effectiveness of lasers in the treatment of onychomycosis: a systematic review
Journal of Foot and Ankle Research 2014, 7:34 (27 July 2014)
In recent years, laser technologies have been developed and heavily marketed as an effective treatment option for onychomycosis. This systematic review of 12 studies by Dr Ivan Bristow reveals only 2 randomised controlled trials, 4 comparative design studies (with no placebo/control groups) and 6 case series investigations, and concludes that the evidence pertaining to the effectiveness of laser treatment of onychomycosis is limited and of poor methodological quality.

Evaluation of multi-segmental kinematic modelling in the paediatric foot using three concurrent foot models
Journal of Foot and Ankle Research 2013, 6:43 (31 October 2013)
This study examined three foot models used for kinematic assessment of the paediatric foot - 3DFoot, Kinfoot and the Oxford Foot Model – in 17 children. Concurrent test-retest repeatability was evaluated during assessment of foot motion during gait. Each model demonstrated moderate repeatability, but levels of repeatability and error varied within foot segments, and between the models. This paper better informs the clinical use and limitations of each 3D foot model.
The effectiveness of salicylic acid plasters compared with ‘usual’ scalpel debridement of corns: a randomised controlled trial
Journal of Foot and Ankle Research 2013, 6:40 (24 September 2013)
A parallel group randomised trial shows that the use of salicylic acid plasters results in a higher proportion of resolved corns, a prolonged time to corn recurrence, less pain and reduced corn size compared to scalpel debridement
Foot loading patterns in normal weight, overweight and obese children aged 7 to 11 years
Journal of Foot and Ankle Research 2013, 6:36 (28 August 2013)
This study examined foot loading during walking in healthy weight, overweight and obese children aged 7 to 11 years. The loading patterns in overweight and obese children were similar, and differed to foot loading in normal weight children. The implications of these findings require longitudinal assessment to ascertain the impact of overweight and obesity on children’s feet and lower limbs, and the manner by which each may be clinically mitigated.

Guidelines for the management of people with foot health problems related to rheumatoid arthritis: a survey of their use in podiatry practice
Journal of Foot and Ankle Research 2013, 6:23 (18 June 2013)
Several guidelines exist that provide recommendations for minimal expectations for patients with rheumatoid arthritis from podiatry care. In this survey of UK podiatrists, the majority did not use the guidelines and did not understand their value. The authors recommend that there is a priority need for improvement in implementation strategies for the guidelines.
